In this contest, we are working with a source photo.

Your goal is to manipulate the photo in any way you want and turn it into a work of art. You can use Photoshop or any other digital image manipulation software.

The source photo for today is 'a forest of parsley'. This photo was submitted by Olga.L and took first place in the herbs and spices photo contest.

You can find a high resolution version of this photo HERE.

Be creative, and let's do some old school photo manipulations!

Good luck!

PS: It's very important to vote on every entry, the more votes we get, the more accurate the rankings will be. Also, when you see something on someone's entry that can be improved, let them know. That way, we can learn new skills from each other!

The Tourist Trail. created by Skyangel

It's a rough trail through the giant parsley forest, especially after the rain. Some like to back pack through it and some take the tour buses so they don't get so muddy. Buses will give way to the walking tourists. Source files are on

Umbellifers created by Skyangel

It's a very rare phenomenon to see the three umbellifers so close to Earth. It happens only once in every three thousand years. They have never been photographed before but some very lucky photographers happened to be at the right place at the right time to get a few shots. I was lucky enough to be one of them.

Golf created by Poss

Only source image used. I know the source image has a lot of possibilities but all I could see was a golf course, and I don't even golf:)
